Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that. – Martin Luther King Jr.

It is better to light a candle than curse the darkness. – Eleanor Roosevelt

An optimist may see a light where there is none, but why must the pessimist always run to blow it out? -Rene Descartes

As far as we can discern, the sole purpose of human existence is to kindle a light in the darkness of mere being. -Carl Jung
